Soap star Adele: I'm pregnant

By Robert Dex

Former Emmerdale star Adele Silva has revealed she turned down a return to the soap because she is pregnant after a string of miscarriages.

It is the first time the 34-year-old actress has spoken out about her heartbreak.

"Some of my friends will be shocked to learn about my previous pregnancies and miscarriages, as I kept them to myself," she told Hello! Magazine.

"But I want other women to know there's light at the end of the tunnel. Every day now I just think: 'Wow'."

Silva, who is 22 weeks' pregnant, said she did not return for her on-screen sister's final scenes in the soap because she wanted to concentrate on her first child with businessman fiancé Oliver Farber.
